Male Athlete of the Week – Nathan Zak (North Bay, Ont.) – 4th Year – Nipissing Lakers
Nipissing men’s soccer picked up two big wins this weekend to bring their record to .500 for the year, with fourth-year forward Nathan Zak playing a key role for the Lakers.
Nipissing opened up their winning weekend with a high-scoring affair with Trent. In the 60th minute, with the Lakers leading 3-1, Zak tallied the team’s fourth and final goal on the afternoon. The marker proved to be an important one, with Trent putting home two late goals to make the final 4-3. Zak also added an assist in the game.
The team’s encore performance against UOIT was a much more defensive battle, but that didn’t stop the North Bay, Ont. native from getting his chances. Despite being held off the score sheet, Zak made his presence felt with four shots on goal, ultimately helping to create chances that led to the winning goal.
